Commercial buildings will require SBEM thermal calculations (with a Target Emission Rate compared to the Building Emission Rate). Flats require SAP 2009 calculations.
Energy Performance Certificates are also required at end of works and air tightness tests will usually be needed as part of the energy assessment for these projects.
Planning may often ask for additional items under the requirements for Sustainable Homes.
EBCS can help advise you on any of these matters or refer you to consultants.
Access for the disabled
Access and facilities for the disabled need to be considered in some detail, often with an access statement, covering the provision for disabled toilets and facilities such as showers, changing rooms, lowered counters etc. Wheelchair refuges by stairs may also be needed where users can await rescue in the event of a fire.
